ASHP 2009 Research Award Presented to Research Team From the University of Michigan Health System

Study on Compounding Accuracy of High-Risk Medications Wins ASHP Research Award

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - CDEX Inc. (OTCBB: CEXI) ( extends its congratulations to Dr. Jim Stevenson and members of his staff at the CS Mott Children's Hospital of the University of Michigan Health System, among the best in the nation, recipients of the 2009 ASHP Literature Award for Pharmacy Practice Research. Their study assessed the sensitivity and specificity of the ValiMed Medication Validation System (MVS) when used to confirm the admixture of high-risk parenteral medications. In the paper they also reported that in the first 18 months of use they identified five major medical errors that would have otherwise caused substantial harm to patients ( Thanks to the courageous efforts of Dr. Stevenson and his staff, many Directors of Pharmacy around the world now better understand the reality that undetected, major errors in the compounding of high-risk medications are happening today in many hospitals and a technological safety net (such as the ValiMed MVS) is needed to protect patients.

CDEX will be demonstrating the lifesaving capabilities of the ValiMed MVS at the ASHP Mid-Year Conference (Venetian Hotel & Sands Expo Center) in Las Vegas on December 7-9, 2009. Dennis Quaid, representing the Dennis Quaid Foundation, will provide a keynote address at the Conference. CDEX invites all those interested in medication safety to stop by Booth # 743 and learn how ValiMed MVS is saving lives in major hospitals today.
